Aaaaah, Michael Miller Fabrics, how I love you.

This is the stinkin'cute "Yippee" made into a mother and son set. I am doing a "grow with me" design now on these little boy's aprons.... a longer velcro-adjust on the safety neckline strap and a tuck in the other side, plus a doubled hem. Good for a 36-inch-tall little helper right now and lasting a long time.

These "Dotty Dot" aprons are some of my favorites ever - I used this fabric in my first 50 and here it is again, thanks to the glories of ebay and other fabric stashers like me. I "just can't get tired of this" as my sweet Breezy said about doing stickers one afternoon at my table. This fabric or making these aprons.

And, Alexander Henry Fabrics are a close second, if we are saying our favorites here.

One apron with these birds is staying home with me.

Again, just cannot seem to keep up with the blogging..... Getting back to the machine tomorrow, and putting together a birthday gift for this guy:

but it will not be an apron.

I did do something new today - started yesterday - I followed a recipe exactly (which was new, too, as a matter of fact) and made a beautiful dense but gorgeously chewy bread. A photo of it is on the other blog. It took 20 hours to rise. Worth it!

I will post some pictures of the stinkin'cute cowboy aprons which are on the table right now. Mommy and son this time. Special order - I love it when I can guess what fabrics a person will like - send them three pictures and they pick the one I guessed they would like best. A little fun game I play... guess the taste. Sometimes I am so dead wrong though it makes me almost gasp.
